The Redmi K30 5G offers a 120Hz screen in the mid-range segment, something which we haven't seen in the past.
Furthermore, the Realme X50 will feature Oppo's latest Enhanced VOOC 4.0 Flash Charge technology which is capable of charging a 4000mAh battery in less than 50 minutes.

By launching the Redmi K30 4G variant, Xiaomi clearly stated its plans of bringing the handset to the Indian market and other markets where 5G will not be launched soon. However, there's no such confirmation from Realme and we don't even know whether the brand is planning to launch a 4G version of the Realme X50. If it launches, it will be interesting to see which chipset Realme will use for the Realme X50 4G.
